The sensor of the FPI Mag meter from McCrometer is coated with a NSF certified 3M fusion-bonded epoxy coating for operational longevity. Hot tap installation addresses the need for uninterrupted service, while improving process control and ensuring delivery accountability.
The FPI Mag meter’s compact insertion design fits in confined spaces with limited access and offers total accessibility. The flow meter can be removed in pipes under pressure for easy inspection, cleaning, calibrating or verification with McCrometer’s own NIST traceable Calibration Lab. It is particularly cost-effective for retrofit applications replacing flow meters or in sites never metered before. The FPI Mag flow meter’s multi-electrode sensor design compensates for variable flow profiles, including swirl, turbulence and low-flow conditions. Multiple electrodes placed across the entire sensor body continuously measure and report the average flow rate over the full diameter of pipe. The FPI Mag is available for line sizes from 4 to 138 inches and rivals the performance of a full bore electromagnetic flow meter. With highly stable measurement, the FPI Mag features accuracy of ±1% of reading ± 0.03 ft/sec zero stability from 0.3 to 20 ft/s velocity range. The flow sensor comes pre-calibrated from McCrometer’s NIST traceable Calibration Lab and requires no recalibration in the field.
Municipal water applications for the FPI Mag include wells, booster stations, effluent, filter balancing and backwash, pumping stations, UV dosing and potable water distribution.
